Shorts are a staple in every Filipina’s closet (thanks to our super humid weather!) but that doesn’t mean you should be wearing what everyone else is wearing. Below, a few pairs of non-boring shorts that deserve your attention.
Thank us later! Here are denim shorts to wear beyond the beach. While your trusty denim cut-offs have been your go-to pair from teenage days to adulthood, we think it's high time to explore new styles and lengths.
Cycling shorts, for instance, need not be made of the usual spandex fabric that's prone to VPLs. A denim rendition might be just what you need. Also try: An extremely distressed pair that you can wear with conservative button-downs for an androgynous look.
